Bested my best Albuquerque 0-60 time on my first try and going uphill lol. 4.9s just punched the gas and went. My best in Albuquerque was a 5.0s in weather 40 degrees colder and using my launch technique.

Jeep pulls so much stronger all around. I forgot how fast the WK2 can be! That mountain air and 91 gas was killing me.

Got 93 octane gas again instead of 91

Canned 91 tune runs much less StKn. Seeing a max of 3 degrees. I'd get like 8-10 degrees of StKn in Albuquerque.

Once I find the areas where I can open the Jeep up more I'm curious to see what my times can be.

I posted the first 4.2 like a year ago. All stock, bwoody intake, low elevation (Kokomo, IN), and like 25-30 degree weather. I'm thinking I can best my 4.2 here with current mods and lower temps.

An exhaust really helps IMO. I noticed a big difference in my Jeep with my custom Borla setup.

I just keep waiting for more options to come out. Seems to be coming along very slowly. But I don't mind waiting about another month and a half because of my trip. If I get a cutback that has drone and I drive across the country, I will hate my life before too long.

Surprisingly I don't have any drone with my setup. It's very loud at WOT, but with widows up the cabin is very well insulated on the WK2. Hardly even hear it inside unless the widows are down. Especially when the rear windows are down, then it's really loud in the cabin. Otherwise, very tame, an quiet for long trips. Which I've done already with my mom in the Jeep. I think the WK2 just provides a lot better sound proofing and insulation, so loud exhausts can be ran with no problem. Keep the widows up and it's a very civilized sound level in the cabin.
